Things to Do on a Day at the Beach
Do you enjoy going to the beach?
Play With Your Dog
Take your dog to the beach with you and have loads of fun trying to make him or her fetch a frisbee. Enjoy the sight of him or her running excitedly on the low waves.
Build a Sand Castle
Have you ever done this? Building a castle on beach sand can be absolutely addicting. You won't even notice time flying past you!
As you build your castle, make sure you focus on the little details. Don't forget digging a moat around it, or your enemies will get the better of your kingdom.
Play Catch with Friends
There's something very invigorating even about the thought of running around on the beach. It's what healthy people do. You do it too! Run about like crazy until you get really hungry.
Chase Little Crabs
Fancy your chances at getting your hands on a crab? Try your luck, but don't hurt it.
Eat Awesome Food
Once your activities on the beach make you tired enough to be terribly hungry, make sure you get an awesome meal. Whether during the day or at night, eating on the beach can be a lot of fun, and a whole load of fulfillment. Nothing feels as great as a full stomach!
Kicking a football about a beach appeals to most people. It doesn't have to be a full, proper match. Just dribbling a ball around and not letting anyone tackle you can be fun enough.
Can anything be more fun on a beach than playing football on the sands? Playing volleyball on the sands of course!
We, as humans, are social creatures. We need to move with others of our kind in order to feel truly happy. There are not many things capable of being more satisfying than having a deep, undisturbed conversation. The conversation may be with someone who's come with you, or it may be with a stranger who's interested in chatting with you.
Watch the Sunset
Watching the sun set on the beach can be totally worth it, even if your romantic partner isn't around. There's something about sunsets that spurs people to deep and productive thoughts.
If possible, try surfing. Make sure you keep yourself safe though. You don't want all the fun to end in tragedy just because the necessary precautions were not taken.
Many beaches have paragliding facilities. Go for it, and paraglide! Just make sure you don't get ripped off.
Get Your Feet Wet in the Water
An absolute no brainer, isn't it? What else do we go to the beach for, if not to get ourselves wet in the warm, salty sea water?
Roller Blade or Skate
Many beaches have exclusively places to roller skate or blade. The feeling of being able to balance yourself on wheels attached to your shoes can be totally exhilarating.
Do Parkour Jumps and Rolls
The beach is an amazing place to practice parkour. You can jump and roll to your heart's content, and no one will disturb you.
Find a secluded corner where you are not likely to be bothered by others, and go for it. The mornings and evenings are the best times to practice yoga on a beach.
All kinds of people go to the beach. The beach is a great place for the kind of observation that can make one mature pretty fast in only a few hours.
Get a Massage
What could be more relaxing than actually getting a massage to revitalize those aching muscles?
Play the Guitar
As darkness sets, make yourself go on an emotional trip as you strum the strings of your guitar!
Light a Bonfire
Once the sun has set, if you have friends with you, dance around a bonfire to build a sense of community. Trade tales from the past. Relive those precious memories.
